A new virus that has spread in the Chinese city Wu-Chan, is very dangerous, and it has already been officially confirmed that it is also transmitted from person to person. Among the hundreds of infected patients, there have already been cases in closer European countries such as Sweden whether Francúzsko.
Are you worried that the virus could survive in your shipment from China? We already know the answer to this question.
Virus in a shipment from China?
Many of us have just ordered a shipment from the Chinese warehouse of one of the popular e-shops at this very moment. This raises the logical question of whether a dangerous virus that has caused the deaths of several people and many others has caused severe breathing difficulties. survive even in the shipment or even in the contents of the package. This is the view of the epidemiologist.
"No, because China is far away. These packages travel for several weeks and the virus cannot survive that long. The time he survives depends mainly on the conditions - whether the environment is humid, dark and on what surface it is located. It is easier to survive on plastics than on metals. In the case of this virus, lifespan is a matter of hours. It can survive for several hours, but not for several days, "emphasizes epidemiologist Zoran Radovanovic.

Some countries, such as Serbia, are stepping up controls at their borders, and China itself is even trying to shocked the new hospital for 1000 people in 6 days. The virus certainly does not need to be underestimated. Nevertheless, the epidemiologist claims to be current coronavirus is less dangerous as the deadly SARS virus a few years ago.
"SARS appeared in 2002 and the mortality rate was 10 percent. The MERS virus appeared in 2012 and up to a third of those infected died. At present, the mortality rate is less than 2 percent. Interestingly, however, there are similarities between viruses. The basic question is whether the virus is mutated, "Zoran Radovanovic continues.
Epidemiologist Radmilovic emphasizes that coronaviruses usually cause a cold that is not fatal. When deaths occur as a result of this type of virus, it is likely to be an extraordinary mutation.
However, we can be calm right in our region and also with incoming shipments from China. They are safe.
